The couple shocked social media users on Tuesday evening after announcing they were engaged. She posted a photo of herself flashing her engagement ring as Rushing grabbed her left hand. She flashed a smile at her husband-to-be and wrote in her Instagram caption, “Yes! Yes! And Yes! For humbling my spirit, for restoring my faith in love, for raising the bar, for being all of what a man should be. For each of these and more I SAY YES!💍 looking forward to forever with you. #Rushingdowntheaisle.”
After speculating for years that the couple was engaged, fans instantly flooded Wright and Rushing with congratulatory messages.
“Congratulations @toyawright !! You deserve endless years of happiness ❤️🎉 blessings to you both and a lifetime of love.”
“You are the man 💙 Sending A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to you for stepping up and staying up. You have a QUEEN! I am so excited💙”
“Yessssss I’m so happy for you sis 😍🥰🙌🏽 don’t forget my invite to the wedding. U deserve it”
“So happy for you ong you will make a beautiful bride just a all around good woman and great role model! Congratulations @toyawright !!!!❤️”
Wright’s eldest daughter Reginae Carter, 20, also jumped on Instagram live the same night to share the good news. In the middle of her little sister Reign Rushing, 1, doing a celebratory dance on camera, Wright walked over to IG live and showed off her ring.
“She gettin’ married,” Carter yelled as she and her mom both screeched in excitement.
During the first two seasons of “Friends & Family Hustle,” Wright expressed her fear of marrying Rushing after her previous failed marriages to rapper Lil Wayne and music producer Micky “Memphitz” Wright. In 2006 she divorced Wayne, whom she shares Carter with, and her marriage to Wright ended in divorce in 2016.
After keeping their relationship covert for nearly a year and a half, the 36-year-old mother and her fiancé welcomed their baby girl Reign into the world on Feb. 8, 2018. It’s unknown when the couple first start dating, but it’s clear they’re looking forward to lifetime of happiness together.
